First Watch

When I saw a First Watch opening in a new strip mall in Cool Springs, I didn't know what it was.  A coworker told me that it was a restaurant chain, a favorite of his for breakfast and brunch.  My friend Lindsey and I are breakfast/brunch fanatics, so we decided to check it out not long after it opened.

It was clean, sunny, and full of people; exactly how a delicious breakfast spot should be!  We were seated immediately on a Saturday morning.  We had a great server who was fast and kind.

I chose the Breakfast Scramble minus Hollandaise sauce: scrambled eggs, spinach, ham, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese on multigrain toast.  It came with a side of their seasoned potatoes and fresh fruit.  It was all delicious, and I was really impressed that it wasn't greasy like many breakfast platters.  It all tasted fresh and hot.

Lindsey chose the Fruit Crepe, which was part of their healthier options menu.  It sure didn't look like it, because it was so decadent and delicious!  The crepes had fresh fruit in them, and was drizzled with strawberry yogurt and cinnamon sugar.  It came with granola and a housemade muffin, which we ended up taking home since the meals were so generous.  (I later went back and had the exact same meal.)

There are at least ten other things that I want to try on the First Watch menu, so I know I'll be back soon!  It's close to my office, so I may even make it a favorite lunch spot.  Everything was reasonably priced (my meal was under $10) and tasty.  I can't believe this is a chain restaurant!  It puts other breakfast restos like IHOP to shame.
